Poland to reach average EU GDP per capita in ten years- PM

Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki has said that under the government's New Deal economic recovery plan Poland will achieve the average EU GDP per capita in the next 10 years.

A flagship project of the Law and Justice (PiS) led government, Polish New Deal plan is aimed at reviving the national economy after the Covid-19 pandemic. It envisages major investment in public infrastructure along with overhauls of the tax and healthcare systems.

"The Polish economy will reach the level, within the next decade, of at least the average GDP per capita of the European Union. This is our goal," Morawiecki said on Monday during a visit to the Lublin region, eastern Poland.

The prime minister added that other goals of the New Deal include making Poland the best place to live in terms of clean air, easy access to public services, communication infrastructure, and all aspects of social life that are important to Poles.

According to Morawiecki, investments will be carried out in "every county without exception."
